Food fans need to get themselves down to Horn Please for a night of fantastic and authentic Indian food. The recipes have been brought directly from New Delhi, and have been infused with Western ideas to create some delicious food.
Taking place in August, Cocktails in the City is one of Glasgow's most popular events. Head over to The Briggait for a night of mixing, concoctions and tasting as the country's best bar people give demonstrations, allow you to make your own tipples and learn the master craft.
Salsa Night at Boteco do Brasil is barrel loads of fun and definitely one of the best events in Glasgow each week. Every Wednesday you can unleash your inner Latin flair with a night of raucous dancing and partying. The evening kicks off with Tumbao Salsa School classes for mixed abilities from 6.45pm. Then from 10.30pm, salsa DJs turn up the heat - and the music - for one red hot night on the dancefloor of this Merchant City bar and club.
With DJs from around the world and three stages of massive acts, Optimo are making sure they turn 20 in style. Better known for their Sunday night shenanigans, they are bringing one hell of a party to SWG3 and The Galvanizers Yard, as they host nine hours of partying.
Swing into summer with the huge sounds of Glasgow Jazz Festival as the event returns to Glasgow for another epic year. Taking place over 5 days you will be able to see a range of artists, from Theo Croker through to Ginger Baker.
What could be better than three days of beer? That's what we thought and that's why it's time to head over to The Briggait in June for Glasgow Real Ale Festival. Join brewers from around the world and sample ales, beers and ciders.
Subculture at Sub Club is the longest running club nights in Glasgow, and with good reason. Resident DJs Harri & Dom have been at the decks for nearly twenty years pumping their unique brand of punchy house to an adoring crowd of ravers who never tire of their stomping sessions. With an ever-evolving selection of top name guest DJs joining them in the Central Glasgow club every Saturday night, there's a reason this club night has garnered quite the cult following and regarded as one of the best events in Glasgow each week.
The only comedy show in Glasgow to be sold out every week for the past five years, The Stand’s Saturday Show brings together the most side-splitting comedians for a night of hilarity. Bringing together five different acts, the best comperes and great headlines from around the UK and abroad, your laughter is guaranteed.
The Pretty Ugly Club is one of the best club nights in Glasgow if you're looking from something a little different to the usual party anthems. Three ladies at the decks spinning some of the slickest alt tunes around in The Admiral basement - what could be better?
